7 Quick Tips to inspire your very own Designer Feature Wall

Let me show you how to create a designer feature wall in your home.

I have put together some tips and images of some of my designs to give you some inspiration.

  • If you want to create the wow factor in your home, a feature wall is a quick and effective way to do this. Make sure that your chosen wall is suitably prepared and has no damp issues.
  • Work out which wall is the most dominant in your room.In a bedroom we often use the bed head wall, creating a backdrop for our headboards. In other rooms it needs to be a wall which is seen, it's no use adding a wonderful wall paper or panel to a wall which can only be seen from a difficult angle.
    The point of a feature wall is to grab the attention and really be seen, so don’t be shy.
  • In my designs over the years I have used many designer wall papers, paint finishes and wall panels and when ever possible I add lighting to make even more of a feature, if you are going to do it, do it well.
  • Adding pictures or art onto a feature wall needs to be done carefully in order to not detract from the wall covering, itself. I personally often choose to let the feature become the art.
  • Some of the wall panels that I have used are a real investment as they are bespoke pieces and become part of the fittings but a paint finish or wall paper can save on costs and be a less risky option if you are not 100% sure.
  • Choose a paper which shows your personality and colour scheme, dont be afraid to be bold with textures.
  • Finally, I strongly recommend using a professional to apply your chosen wall feature, as amateur mistakes can end in tears.
